This past Saturday was my school's Senior Prom and I wanted to share a few photos with you all! If I had more time, I would have decided to make my dress so I could have something that was one of a kind. My dream dress would have been very voluminous and in a bold, jewel tone like ruby red or jade green––something along the lines of the dresses by Lanvin! There wasn't much time left when I set out to look for my dress, and most of the places selling formal dresses had already been picked through. Even finding something in my size (regardless of being picky with the design) was a challenge! I thought that some girls were crazy to start looking for their dresses months in advance, but if you want to save yourself from multiple headaches, then start as early as you can so you can get the first pick!
I was so happy to find this gold sequin halter gown by Badgley Mischka though! At that point, I stopped being picky about the color and just wanted something that would stand out. I thought the gold sequins would look really dazzling, and the halter neck made it perfect for me to go full on with an "Old Hollywood" inspired look, complete with pin curls and classic red lips! I didn't intentionally plan out the color palette of gold and red (Iron Man colors) but once I realized the coincidence, I asked my date to get me a red corsage, and painted my nails red as well. If you are thinking of buying this gown and have any questions about the fit, feel free to email me! This dress will surely make you the belle of the ball!
PS: It was also my sister, Michelle's, 15th birthday on the day of my prom, so happy birthday to her! :)
